Lawrenceville breaks ground on new $20M public works facility

Lawrenceville broke ground Tuesday at the site of its new Public Works facility on West Pike Street, soon be home to 112 city employees. The total investment of the project is estimated to be around $20 million.

“We are grateful for all of those involved that have made it possible to build this new facility for some of the most crucial departments in the city. The departments that will be housed there are the backbone of Lawrenceville and what they contribute to the city every day is absolutely invaluable,” said Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson.

Croft and Associates, the architectural and engineering firm managing the project, will begin prep of the site this month. Construction will be completed by Reeves Young, with architectural design competed by Precision Planning and an intersection being added to Pike Street by E.R. Snell Contractor Inc. Facility operations to be housed out of the new site include electric, gas, damage prevention, fleet maintenance and streets and sanitation services.

The new facility is being completely funded through public investment with the use of bonds and is scheduled for completion in early 2018.
